1 Minute, TODAY

Over the next 24 hours we ask that you estimate the number of hours you have spent in the past academic year engaged in Pro Bono Program projects.  Estimate  your time as a GAL, conducting intake at the HELP Clinic, prepared wills, answered questions at a Friday Blitz, researched for a pro bono client, cooked soup or chili, interviewing clients or any of a myriad of other projects.  It is simple: click on this link, answer three questions and you are done! http://bit.ly/ProBonoPoll

Thank you in advance for taking 1 minute to report  and for the unlimited time you have given making a difference!

Have questions? No problem, we have answers contact the Pro Bono Program at: Robinspd@law.sc.edu

 

1 Minute, 1 Day, Unlimited hours!

For 24 hours we ask that all USC Law students who have engaged in any manner with the Pro Bono Program, ESTIMATE the hours of service they have performed since August, 2018.

We know that “collecting hours” is not your motivation for your pro bono service but just for fun we thought it would be fun to capture that data!  Sorry but time spent in Clinics, Externships and student organization is not what we are gathering.

Your service is priceless as is your time

Watch for Law School Inbox for the link to the very short poll!

It will only be available for 24 hours on April 10th

New Probate Ct. Guardians ad Litem

A new team of law student volunteers have been trained and soon will be joining an already active team serving as guardians ad litem in Richland County Probate Court guardianship and conservatorship cases.  They will investigate, interview, advocate and recommend rights to be retained for alleged incapacitated persons.  The old program, Probate Ct. Special Visitors was replaced by the Probate Court GAL Project when the law changed on Jan. 1, 2019

Congratulations to: Will Anderson, Thomas Brown, Clare Kelly, Emily Lary, Johnna Menke, Zach Ohanesian, Konnor Owen,Christina Perry, Melanie Rice, Renique Robinson, Carlee Taber, and Mackenzie Thomas
